Unfortunately, this is not going to work because $LINUX is undef at compile-time:
$ perl if ($^O eq 'linux') { $LINUX=1; }; use if $LINUX, 'MIDI::ALSA' => ('SND_SEQ_EVENT_PORT_UNSUBSCRIBED', 'SND_SEQ_EVENT_SYSEX'); __END__ $ perl -MMIDI::ALSA Can't locate MIDI/ in @INC (@INC contains: /home/aitap/perl5/li +b/perl5/i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi-64int /home/aitap/perl5/lib/perl5 +/i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi-64int /home/aitap/perl5/lib/perl5 /etc/p +erl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.14.2 /usr/local/share/perl/5.14.2 /usr/lib/ +perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.14 /usr/share/perl/5.14 /usr/l +ocal/lib/site_perl .). BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.
But if the test is done in the BEGIN{} section, everything works (well, not for me because of the absence of the module):
$ perl BEGIN{ if ($^O eq 'linux') { $LINUX=1; }; } use if $LINUX, 'MIDI::ALSA' => ('SND_SEQ_EVENT_PORT_UNSUBSCRIBED', 'SND_SEQ_EVENT_SYSEX'); Can't locate MIDI/ in @INC (@INC contains: /home/aitap/perl5/li +b/perl5/i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi-64int /home/aitap/perl5/lib/perl5 +/i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi-64int /home/aitap/perl5/lib/perl5 /etc/p +erl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.14.2 /usr/local/share/perl/5.14.2 /usr/lib/ +perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.14 /usr/share/perl/5.14 /usr/l +ocal/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/share/perl/5.14/ line 13. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at - line 3.
Sorry if my advice was wrong.
